A 1955 Mercedes Benz 300SL Gullwing – once the property of its sole owner, pilot and  US Merchant Marine, Sig Noygren – it’s been in dry storage since 1976.

From the Fire Engine Red paint and red plaid upholstery, the car (with just 32,239 miles on the clock) remains in its original state aside from custom enhancements, including a chronometer, altimeter, and thermometer, as well as fog lights, an eight-track player, and a defroster fan.

Yours for around $1,000,000.
